Who is behind Kirtana168?

Hi, my name is Kirti, founder of this incredible space of calmness, consideration and connection.

I’ve worked with internationally diverse communities for 20 years,  inspiring ethnic cultures to lean into their identity, shape their story and living at ease in their relationships.

In recent years, there has been a huge shift in the way we communicate,  and there is a fear around how to engage with diverse communities. I’ve created a proven method  that brings back the feeling of consideration and respect for individuals to collaborate, communicate and speak with ease. 

 I am the author and international coach of #befriendurmind. As a DEI wellbeing advocate, I give talks and workshops on how to befriend the mind and lead with presence.
